Integrated Workflow Scanning with uniFLOW Capture
uniFLOW Capture is an easy to use software platform to manage all scanning in your organization. It is designed to allow you to scan, process and distribute documents around the organization, thus improving productivity and ensuring compliance
uniFLOW Capture is a customizable solution that helps users capture, process and distribute documents around the organization. Users can be shown a series of personalized workflows that are relevant to their job role, allowing them to scan documents directly, into the relevant business processes or backend document management systems
Scan – Process – Distribute
To prevent unauthorized usage of the devices uniFLOW Capture allows users to identify themselves at the Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE office printer with a wide variety of identification methods. Following authentication, users see only the scan workflows that are relevant to them. These workflows will follow the end‐user, no matter which device they logon at.
After capturing images they can be automatically converted into fully searchable, structured and hyper‐compressed documents which can be edited, archived or integrated directly into your back‐end system.
Once these documents have been processed they can be automatically exported to various destinations. They can be emailed, placed in a shared network or personal folder, exported to a cloud based system or Microsoft SharePoint®, or to certain DMS/ECM systems, such as HP Worksite, FileNet Content Manager or Content Server.
Tailored to your exact needs
Different departments and users have different requirements when it comes to scanning documents. For more complex environments requiring adaptation of the customer’s workflow, it is possible to tune uniFLOW Capture to the specific demands.
Device based licensing scheme
With the device based licensing scheme you can easily expand your uniFLOW Capture installation according to your business requirements at any time, minimizing your investment risk. By simply investing in what you need you can transform your multifunctional devices into an essential tool that will bring immediate benefits to your organization. With the device based license the system can be easily setup using wizards which cover the majority of today’s business scan requirements.
To prevent unauthorised use of a device, uniFLOW Capture allows users to identify themselves at the Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE office printer with a variety of methods. Users can be granted different access rights to various functions of the device dependent on their job role.
Real “Follow‐Me” Scanning / Personalized Workflows
uniFLOW Capture allows users to only view workflows relevant to them. These workflows will follow the end‐user around the company, no matter which device they logon to.
Convenient Scan Interface
After scanning a document, a preview can be generated allowing the end‐user to verify their job and also provides the capability of automatically or manually adding additional information to the job.
Fast and Flexible Processing
uniFLOW Capture can optimize the scan result and automatically process the images using zonal OCR or barcode recognition to extract the information contained therein. This allows to automatically pre‐fill index information or to be converted to a format, such as Microsoft Word®, avoiding errors caused by manual entry.
Distribute to where it is needed
Once captured and processed documents can be exported to a selection of destinations automatically. uniFLOW Capture provides the ability to scan documents directly to management systems such as Microsoft SharePoint®, Microsoft OneDrive™, Google Drive™, Evernote®, Dropbox, Box and numerous others, as highly compressed image files.
